Subject: Great Surprise
I've really neglected 82 and I've been discovering a few gems - this among them. This one for me was topheavy as I think that first set was outstanding from the excellent New Minglewood onwards. This is truly a Bobby show and he is in full energy mode. The second set is great as well especially that incredible Sailor>Saint but the Touch is really flat. Excellent jam on Throwing Stones.
Best of all, this crisp sounding show is downloadable! Thanks for making this available and vastly improving my commute tomorrow morning.

Subject: Best Source For One of The Best... Ever , Really .......From '82 - '86
My first tape had just the 1st set and the encores .
It's really the bee's knees outside of a few throwaways (sorry) , but mostly .....well, give it a whirl .

Subject: great show
Sound quality is really good ... a little background conversation here and there but for an aud I have no complaints.

Though I think that, for the most part, the setlist is pretty conventional, the performance is fantastic. Loads of electricity packed up in this baby. As Jerry would say, crackling with electricity!!!

Subject: Great recording, Rango!
Awsome FOB....just the way I like 'em. Good story about the cheap Sony Mics from Rango and Mike....sure the bottom end isn't as deep as it could be, but this recording kicks ass! Superb performance from the boys, too.

Subject: Best of 1982?
Aaahhhhhhh, yes.....10Oct82 Frost; so near & dear to my heart. I've been listening to this awesome show for more than 20 years and I've yet to find another '82 show to match it's all-around brilliance. A TRUE contender for the Best Of 1982....

....and I've gotta pause a moment here and give sincere respect & thanks for the fellas that recorded this; you have no idea (or maybe you DO!) how much joy your recording efforts that day have enriched my life (and the lives of so many others). After 25 years of tape trading, amassing thousands of hours of Live Dead, this show remains on my All-Time Favorites list.


The older I get, I'm more aware of the fleeting nature of time.....and a good example of that awareness is that I'm much more particular when deciding what Dead show(s) I'm gonna listen to. No more time spent whittling the hours away listening to mediocre material, waiting for something to happen; I reach ONLY for the best.....and this show continues to hit my tape decks/CD players on a regular basis and will no doubt continue to do so for the rest of my life.


This show was on the cusp of the rather mediocre period of 1983-86; the band seemingly was developing an indifference to performing and this resulted in a flat, dispassionate & MADDENINGLY "rushed" sound on most nights that simply didn't work for me (although I kept going to the shows, always praying for one of "those" nights!). And, although massive fun was had at the shows themselves, gem-like playing during this period was few & far between.....and don't even ASK me about SDBDs from this period: they're ultra-dry & fail to engage me. AUDs are definitely the way to go here. (Actually, when trading nowadays, I don't even LOOK for SDBDs from the '80s or '90s; there's not one iota of warmth to them, imho!)

* One more very ironic aside: after my dismissal of the calibre of playing during this era, my very favorite Live Dead experience (50 shows between 1980-88) was 28June85 Hershey! *


BUT I DIGRESS: if you've not yet been turned on to this show, you NEED to begin downloading immediately and experience the Grateful Dead at the peak of their 1982-vintage powers!

Amen.

My first Dead show -- and first dosing. Took two and laughed and laughed and laughed all the way through the second set. A favorite tape until it went awol a few years later -- esp fine progression of Crazy > Lost > Saint.

Fun history moment: in one of the pregnant pauses in Sugar Mag (about 6:49), Bobby asks folks to vote yes for Proposition 12 -- California's Nuclear Freeze Initiative.

Hey Mike! Yes, indeed, and man, it was truly another time's forgotten space, but listening to these tapes puts me right back there. Who would have thunk it, way back then, our lives would be as they are now. It's a trip, and keeps on going!

Definitely a great day, the day after we went to dinner after a great show and talked about skipping the show due to how the hell would they beat what they did that day. And, yet, they did, IMO! :)

Subject: Thanks Rango
Wow. It's been 26 years since Rango and I made these seminal recordings at Frost Amphitheatre. We were, from what I recall, dead center, right between the stage and soundboard, using my "crappy" Sony ECM-220T microphones ("crappy" only because they cost something like $50...together! Everyone else had far superior Nakamichi mics...) hoisted far (10 feet?) above the audience. These recordings do sound excellent, considering the times and equipment. But credit should go to the Dead's sound people for extraordinary source sound quality and Sony for their D5 as well ;o). Great tranfer job - proof that old tapes, if stored right, don't die (but neither do they improve with age...;o} ).

A show of a recording one can keep revisiting.

Rango's delight is in this reviewer's humble opinion the finest recording of the Grateful Dead on the Archives, whether AUD or SBD. It is pure and warm and full and PHAT. A walk in the park, a run on the beach, a hike in the woods and a stroll down main street with your best girl on your arm.
